The app is part of a bundle and is made by the seller ios developer. (Copy of the Vendor Homepage: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/iwifi-for-chat/id512703175 ) Abstract Advisory Information: ============================== The Vulnerability Laboratory Research team discovered a remote denial of service vulnerability in the iWifi for Chat v1.1 iOS web-application. Vulnerability Disclosure Timeline: ================================== 2014-12-16: Public Disclosure (Vulnerability Laboratory) Discovery Status: ================= Published Affected Product(s): ==================== iOS Developer Product: iWifi for Chat - iOS Web Application 1.1 Exploitation Technique: ======================= Remote Severity Level: =============== Medium Technical Details & Description: ================================ A remote denial of service vulnerbaility has been discovered in the official iWifi for Chat v1.1 iOS web-application. The vulnerbaility allows remote attackers to shutdown the service application by sending a special crafted chat message. The vulnerability is located in the application message input context. Remote attackers are able to inject special chars to provoke an error that results in a app shutdown. The bug can be exploited by processing to send special crafted symbole messages through the context message input box. The vulnerability allows an attacker to crash the connected remote ios client. The security risk of the denial of service vulnerability is estimated as medium with a cvss (common vulnerability scoring system) count of 4.6. Exploitation of the DoS vulnerability requires no privileged application user account but a connected chat user for interaction. Successful exploitation of the code execution vulnerability results in mobile application compromise and affected or connected device component compromise. Vulnerable Module(s): [+] Chat Message Input Box Vulnerable Parameter(s): [+] message context Affected Module(s): [+] iWifi for Chat v1.1 Proof of Concept (PoC): ======================= The Vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without user interaction or privileged application user account.
